I've actually tried a few different combos to correct it. Nothing worked. I think I might've gotten a little wobble out of it, but it's hard to verify since I was alone. Worse case scenario I'll just buy another shaft.
I did that. I loosened the nut and pulled/yanked up on the shaft as I retightened. Same deal. I think the only way to fix it is to buy another lower shaft. Nope. I'm gonna run it for awhile, see what happens. Honestly I think it'll be fine tho.
New shafts together.
New lower shaft play from banging it--
Compared to the old shaft play--I didn't bang this one in place--
Just documenting my steering shaft replacements.
Did upper and lower shafts. Pain in the balls like everything else on this Hoe! Done--but to 90% correctness. Call it good for government work!
Pics to satisfy all you voyeurs!
Upper shaft. It's best to remove the gas pedal to get to the bolt...
